Hi all,

At the end of our summer I posted that EMRFD was about to die.   The third printing (a.k.a., the Revised First Edition) was completely sold out and no additional printings were planned. We had known that this was coming, so there was no surprise.   I really thought that this was the end.    But the folks at ARRL listened and entertained some of our ideas.    It now appears that something will happen.    The time table is tentative, but early 2017 looks good.   There is not much more to say at this time.    Keep an eye on QST for advertisements.    I'll post something here when the details are set.

Thanks to all for the support and interest.  

73, Wes

Great news Wes!   If I can help in any way let me know.

I spent 15 years in publishing here in NYC and have production experience.

Best and 73,

Hi Wes,

Congrats, I was hoping that a new edition would be coming!

It is certainly good news.
